A skateboarding thief steals a camera from a young filmmaker and a chase ensues. A more developed multivariant narrative which allows the user to change the length and the action content of the final playout. User preferences, cinematic constraints and narrative structure are all taken into account in constructing the final playout.

Only a single prototype production was made to test the concept.

This content used Ryan Evan's "LogBoy and FilterGirl" systems.
